Excitement is growing as competitors gear up for the Mitsubishi Motors Cup – a key fixture in the British Eventing calender, now held at Badminton each year.
CrossCountry App have announced the digital interactive maps for the 2017 BE90 and BE100 Mitsubishi Motors Cup cross-country courses are now available for all to view online.
At this stage, the fences are in their final combinations and position, giving competitors and supporters their first sight of what will be awaiting them on the competition’s cross country day, Wednesday 3rd May 2017.
Audio notes from course designer James Willis will be included and photos updated once all fences on both courses have been flagged and dressed.
Mitsubishi Motors UK Ambassador Emily King will also provide audio on Monday 1st May to create a virtual guided course walk.
This will be invaluable for riders at this year’s competition as well as providing inspiration for those aiming for the competition in the future.
Badminton Event Director, Hugh Thomas says: “In addition to each Mitsubishi Motors Cup competitors’ training and fitness work, having access to an interactive version of the course plays an important role in helping riders feel as prepared as possible for what will be the biggest competition in many of their eventing careers.”
